    Will Smith, who enjoyed the holiday weekend watching his new film Hancock nab the number one slot at the box office, and longtime wife Jada Pinkett Smith have founded the New Village Academy, a private school set to open in September.

    Despite the fact that the school will employ instructional methods developed by controversial Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard and hire a few teachers who subscribe to the oft-questioned faith, the Smiths maintain that they are not Scientologists themselves and N.V.A. is by no means a Scientology school. The couple insists that N.V.A. is a non-secular institution with Christian, Jewish, and Muslim staffers on the payroll as well. The school will have reading, math, yoga, etiquette, and robotics classes.
